Jeff will visit Castlemaine, Kyneton and Bendigo during­ March to speak about his latest book High Voltage: The Life of Angus Young.

Released in August 2017, High Voltage focusses exclusively on the life of AC/DC’s last man standing, Angus Young. It charts his remarkable rise from working class Glasgow and Sydney to the biggest stages in the world. It’s lively, highly readable and very inspiring; having reached the top of the Independent Publisher Bestseller list in its first week!

“It’s fantastic to have such a well credentialed writer come and speak with our audiences. Music fans should greatly enjoy Jeff’s many insights into prominent music stars of our time,” said Tammy Higgs, Coordinator of Programs and Events at Goldfields Libraries.

Jeff will speak at Castlemaine Town Hall on Wednesday 21 March from 5-6pm, Kyneton Library on Thursday 22 March from 2-3pm and Bendigo Library on Friday 23 March from 5-6pm. Book sales and signings will follow each event.
